Final route for Fargo-St. Cloud 345 kV transmission line project

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MN PUC) granted a Route Permit for the Fargo-St. Cloud 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line project on June 10, 2011. The MN PUC approved a route that generally follows Interstate 94 from the North Dakota border near Fargo to the Alexandria Switching Station. From Alexandria, the line will continue east mostly along Interstate 94 to Sauk Centre where it heads south along county and township roads near Albany, Collegeville and St. Joseph to the new Quarry Substation west of St. Cloud. Construction is expected to begin in late 2011 and be complete in 2015.
